Since resigning from full-time employment to focus on writing, I have accumulated little, part-time jobs like an evergreen bagworm accumulates plant debris. (Are you familiar with these creatures? My parents have one in their yard right now. It looks like a walking pinecone and is, in my scientific opinion, completely cuckoopants.)
Seriously – what the hell?
Last week’s schedule perfectly reflected my weird new “writer’s life.” It looked like this:
Monday: Teach first aid & CPR classes
Tuesday: Complete certification to instruct babysitting classes
Wednesday: Work at bakery
Thursday: WRITE! 😃 Oh, glorious day! Get way less accomplished than I’d hoped.
Friday: Head to stone mason’s worksite. Haul rocks & gravel. Drop boulder on toe. 😳
Saturday: Instruct babysitting class. Miss Women’s March and have sad feelings.
Sunday: Back to worksite. Transport 1500-pound boulder across hilly terrain using pry bars, planks, and PVC pipes.
We rocked it.
So…yeah, current life = somewhat scattered! Whenever I find myself wondering why it’s taking so long to finish the second book of Aret, I’ll just reread this post. 🙂
